I guess the most valuable lesson I learned was to not be a bonehead... I have the Win7 Ultimate RC installed right now and Win7 Professional retail is what I was planning to put on. So I am not able to upgrade, which I wasn't aware would be a problem. I'll just backup my files and do a clean install. Which is what I was hoping to avoid, but that's ok. I'll just have to spend an entire day reinstalling all my software. :/
I'd try the Windows Easy Transfer tool! Doc has used it to transfer quite a lot of applications, data, etc, and it works great.

Yes, WET will certainly speed things along. You still have to reinstall the apps but it should put many of the settings and data back in the right places.
